DETROIT (WJBK) - To celebrate the 16th anniversary of The Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem is selling a unique collectible -- bricks from his childhood home.
The house, 19946 Dresden Street, was featured on The Marshall Mathers LP and its sequel. It was located just south of Eight Mile Road near Hoover Street until its demolition in 2013 due to structural safety issues. He was able to secure materials before it was demolished, though.
